What is a Talent Agency Bond?

Businesses operating as talent agencies may have to meet a state requirement to obtain a talent agency license in order to conduct business legally. A talent agency bond is part of the licensing process, with requirements varying from state to state. A talent agency bond offers protection to the state licensing agency as well as the customers of a talent agency in the event the business does not operate in line with the law.

A talent agency bond is a surety bond that involves three parties to a contract. The agency is the principal, or the business or individual required to obtain a bond, while the obligee is the state licensing authority requiring the bond as part of getting a license. A surety company provides the bond to the talent agency. When a bond claim is submitted, the surety determines if it is legitimate. If it is and the talent agency has breached its legal obligations, the claim is paid. However, the talent agency is required to repay any claim amount, making it necessary to keep bond claims to a minimum.

What Does a Talent Agency Bond Cost?

Talent agency bond pricing is set as a percentage of the total bond amount purchased. That percentage range is 1 to 4% in most cases. The bond needed to secure a talent agency license differs from state to state, with some requiring a bond of $500 and others up to $100,000. If your percentage rate is 2% and your bond requirement is $10,000, you pay $200 for your talent agency bond.

The rate you pay for a talent agency bond is based on the risk you pose to the surety. To determine your risk, an evaluation of your personal credit score, business financials, and experience in the industry is completed. When credit has been an issue in the past, with negative marks and late payments, the percentage rate of your talent agency bond is likely to fall on the higher end of the range.
